Activate and deactivate dynamic modules

In order to use a module, it must be active. If you have created a module that does not appear under the Content tab, it means that you have not activated the module.

To activate or deactivate a module, perform the following:

  1. Click Administration » Module builder.
  2. Perform one of the following:
    • Click the Actions link of the module that you want to activate and click Activate or Deactivate respectively.
    • Click the module you want to activate and then click Activate this module or Deactivate this module respectively.

When you activate a module, the module appears under the Content tab, together with all of its first level content types – you can use it to create dynamic content items. Sitefinity CMS also adds a new widget group for each module and adds one widget for each content type. You use this widget to display the content items created with this module.
When you deactivate the module, it is removed from the Content tab and from the widgets toolbox.
